Save time and money

For the cost of a single flight lesson, our course will save you hours of time in the air and hundreds of dollars. The step-by-step video lessons are better than ground school, helping you prepare for your next flight lesson ahead of time so you spend less time reviewing and more time learning. 

Completion certificateGet your written test endorsement

Ace the written with our interactive test preparation program. You can create customized study sessions from the actual FAA test questions and see the right and wrong answers, plus plain English explanations written by our team of CFIs. Then, take a practice test that simulates the real knowledge exam you'll have to pass. We’ll even give you the flight instructor endorsement to take the written test—right from the course!

Pass all your tests—guaranteed!

Our course is so complete we guarantee you’ll pass all three tests: the written, oral and flight. Incredible 3D animations and dynamic in-flight video make complicated subjects like aerodynamics and weather easy to understand, so you’ll impress the examiner. Plus, our Practical Test Standards Study Guide cross-references every required task to the videos, making it easy to review for the checkride.

Be ready for real world flying

Learning to fly means a lot more than just passing a test. That’s why Sporty’s course goes beyond the textbook to teach you real world flying, making you a safer, more confident pilot. Special Air Facts segments with renowned aviation author Richard Collins are packed with no-nonsense tips you can use after the checkride.

Covers Private, Recreational and Sport

Our Learn to Fly Course is really three courses in one – you choose the license that makes sense for you. Get started with your training and progress toward your first solo, the critical first step for everyone. Then choose the Sport, Recreational or Private Pilot track – it’s all here! Plus, experience has shown that students learn most effectively when the training process is divided into manageable steps. So each module builds on the previous one, creating a building-block approach that saves you time and money.

Great material!
The material was very easy to use and follow. However, when I opened my E6B the display was scratched and the film that was supposed to protect it was not there.

Well conceived program!
The program is thorough, well done, well narrated, very effective and enjoyable. It has a nice mix of theory, practical information and live shots to make it easier to visualize the material. I would buy it again and highly recommend it to anyone in the pursuit of the same dream of flying.

Big Bang for the buck but misleading
You get a lot for what you pay but go ahead and order you another flight log because the one in this kit might make it through your training. I didn't receive my fuel tester that is included in the kit which isn't a big deal because the planes I fly have them in them but if I ever do come across one that doesn't then I'll be thinking other wise. The videos are good and informal though. SPORTY'S CUSTOMER SERVICE RESPONSE Thank you for the review. Please accept our apologies for the mixup. We'll send the correct fuel tester our ASAP.

Can two people use the same course? My wife and I would both like to get our pilot license.
Reaper on Sep 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can both use the course but only one person is able to receive the endorsement for taking the FAA exam. This would be the person that the course is register too. The other person would need to have a CFI endorsement to take the exam.
I am homeschooling a high schooler who wants to go through this course. Can I assign high school credits to this and how much time should be allowed to complete it?
Terah on Mar 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure about assigning high school credit to the course. The course includes over 23 hours of video information. Time for most people to complete this course is 2-4 months depending how much time is devoted per day. To obtain a pilot licenses between 6- 9 months.
Is there an opportunity to go over the actual questions that are on the private pilot written exam?
Terah on Mar 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The actual questions are not release to the public. You will be tested on questions that are similar to what you will see on the actual test.
does your course count as ground school with the FAA ?
A shopper on Dec 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it counts as a home study course and includes an endorsement so that you may take the written exam.
